“I decided it was time to get relief and better motion for my aching neck.”
Do you find your neck aching at the end of the day or stiff in the morning? Do you have headaches more than once a week? You are not alone. According to the Institute of Medicine of TheNational Academies, over 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Over 15% of those, suffer from chronic neck pain and 27% with back pain. In a survey conducted with over 300 chronic pain sufferers, 59% reported an impact on the quality of their life and 77% of those surveyed reported feeling depressed. Even small amounts of pain, can lead to a downward spiral in quality of life, energy, and well being. However, it doesn’t have to be this way and dependency on medication is not the answer. Discovering and treating the root cause of your pain is the
answer. Our team of specialists can treat the mechanical cause of your pain. The neck is an incredible part of your body with 7 vertebrae (bones), over 16 joints and many muscles in the front and back of your neck. The greatest concentration of muscles and tissues is in the upper neck, at the base of your skull. This is where many of the larger muscles that support the head attach to support your head and neck. It is also where the vertebral and carotid arteries travel through your neck, entering your skull to supply your brain. Needless to say, this is a very tightly packed area and muscle tension can affect blood flow to the scalp, causing headaches. The experts at Ramsey Rehab can help you relieve neck pain and feel better again.
